Doctor Who: Revelation of the Daleks in July

BBC Worldwide have announced that, as was widely predicted, the Colin Baker story Revelation of the Daleks will be the July release in their classic Doctor Who range. Considered by many to be one of the Sixth Doctor's finest adventures, the two-part story sees the Time Lord and companion Peri (Nicola Bryant) arriving on the planet Necros to investigate the goings-on at a Cryogenic Facility called Tranquil Repose. No prizes for guessing who they find there in this tale, which was first broadcast as the last of the series' twenty-second season in March 1985.

Expect the episodes to get the usual spit and polish from the ever-superb Restoration Team while the disk will also come with the following extras:

  • Optional Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround mix

  • Commentary - with director Graeme Harper, writer Eric Saward and actors Nicola Bryant and Terry Molloy

  • Isolated music - mono

  • New CGI effects

  • Revelation Exhumed - a new featurette interviewing cast and crew

  • In Studio - a behind-the-scenes featurette, which can be viewed with a commentary by Graeme Harper and Terry Molloy

  • Three short deleted scenes

  • Off-air continuity announcements from the original and repeat (four part) BBC transmissions

  • Picture gallery

  • Easter egg - actors recreating some of their lines for use in the 5.1 remix

  • Subtitles

  • Commentary subtitles

  • Production notes

In addition, rights issues mean that a song included in the original transmission, Jimi Hendrix's Fire, will be edited out in a similar (but technically far superior) manner to the VHS release. Expect the disk to retail at the usual £19.99.
